Need a bit of guidance with removing the engine...

Things I am stuck on..

I am trying to pull the ECU wiring out through the firewall..
That huge grommet doesn't want to budge. I'm halfway leaning towards box cutting alllll the lines and than soldering them back together (doesn't take me long) but im trying to stay on the right path.. Any tips? I've pulled and poked and prodded, but can't seem to get it out in order to pull the harness through..

A/C compressor.. Can I just pull the engine with it in place, along with the oil cooler lines?
It seems the Viggen intercooler won't allow me enough room to get to the bolts.

What do I need to do to remove the transmission with the engine? I would assume there are steps involving disconnecting the shifter housing, I can't find a guide anywhere though. Not as simple as undoing the transmission mounts and pulling it out..

Noob questions from a noob, lol
